Ronco Ready Grill Parts:
Ready Grill Chassis
Removable Heat Shields & Basket Guides
Removable Drip Tray
Grill Basket
Getting to know your
1. Removable Heat Shields – These two stainless steel heat shields
slide down between the elements and outer housing of the grill. They
reflect heat onto the food and are removable for ease of cleaning.
(See page 16 for Care, Cleaning & Disassembling)
2. Basket Guides – The Basket Guides squeeze the Grill Basket and
secure the food in place. This gentle pressure allows for even cooking
and beautiful grill marks. The Basket Guides also protect the side
panels from grease splatter during cooking and are removable for
thorough cleaning. (See page 16 for Care, Cleaning & Disassembling)
3. Double-Wall Side Panels – The double-wall design insulates and
allows minimum heat loss for efficient cooking while saving on power
and provides safe to touch outer panels.
4. Grill Basket with Handles – This amazing Grill Basket secures food
while it cooks. It has a standard setting for normal sized and thicker
foods and reverses to a thin setting for thinner foods like asparagus.
Convenient handles help you open/close and load the basket into the
Ronco Ready Grill.
5. Removable Drip Tray – Located at the base of the Ronco Ready Grill.
This tray collects grease, fat, crumbs, etc. The Drip Tray should always
be in position before using the Ronco Ready Grill. The metal section of
the tray and plastic base can be separated for thorough cleaning.
(See page 16 for Care, Cleaning & Disassembling)
6. Analog Timer – Turn the dial clockwise and the heating elements will
start heating up immediately. Set the dial to your desired cooking time.
The Ronco Ready Grill will automatically turn off once the set time is
up. We suggest you preheat your Ronco Ready Grill for 3 minutes prior
to inserting the Grill Basket for the juiciest result.
7. LED Light – The LED light indicates if the heating element is on.
8. Side Handles - There are two recessed handles on the two side
panels to allow for convenient handling.
Using your Ronco Ready™ Grill
When grilling foods, especially meat and chicken, best results are achieved
when the juices are quickly sealed within the food. The Ronco Ready
Grill cooks on both sides at once, so it cooks nearly twice as fast as
conventional grilling methods.
Grilling with the Ronco Ready Grill is also one of the most effective ways
of allowing unwanted fat to drain away into the convenient Drip Tray.
Removing this unwanted grease and fat makes it one of the healthiest
methods to cook incredibly juicy steaks, tasty sausages and tender, crispy
chicken and even various frozen foods!
Your Ronco Ready Grill is not only the ideal way to cook fresh meat, it
is also handy for preparing frozen party appetizers and snacks when
entertaining friends. Keep your Ronco Ready Grill on hand for breakfast,
lunch and dinner. We promise it will be your new favorite kitchen appliance.
Read the following instructions carefully to get maximum use of
your Ronco Ready Grill:
1. Ensure the front and back Heat Shields, the reflective Basket Guides
and Drip Tray are clean and correctly positioned. Position both of the
Basket Guides first, then the Heat Shields slide between the inner
wall and the heating elements. Be sure the stamped “TOP” is visible
towards the top of the unit.
2. Drip Tray needs to be pushed all the way in to the back wall. Make sure
the metal tray is securely snapped on the bottom plastic tray.
3. Plug into any A.C. power outlet.
4. Turn the timer on to the desired cooking time. Grilling time should
be increased or decreased according to thickness of food, texture,
color and individual preference. (For juicier results, we recommend
preheating your Ronco Ready Grill for 3 minutes prior to inserting the
loaded Grill Basket.)
5. Load the Grill Basket with food. This rack can be folded both ways and
is reversible for cooking thin or thick foods. Fold basket to wide setting
for normal and thick foods (steak, sausages, chicken, vegetable, etc.).
Fold basket to narrow setting for thin foods (bacon, etc.). All food to be
grilled should be contained within the limits of the Grill Basket.
6. Lower the Grill Basket into the grill to cook the food. The Grill Basket
slides in between the Basket Guides, where the basket and food are
supported during cooking.
7. When grilling pork products and other excessively fatty foods, check
your tray periodically and limit the amount in each grill load to prevent
grease from overflowing the Drip Tray.
NOTE: Cooking times given in recipes and cooking charts assume the grill
has been preheated for 3-5 minutes prior to cooking. Cooking times will
vary by thickness, size of food, amount of food and temperature of food.
